Youth

Indigenous youth are one of the fastest growing populations in Canada today (Statistics Canada, 2017). This means the number of Indigenous youth seeking employment and education opportunities is on the rise.

BC Indigenous Youth 3C Challenge

The 3C Challenge is an opportunity for Indigenous youth, ages 15 to 29, to develop their business skills and explore their entrepreneurial spirit. Each participant will gain a deeper understanding of how they can connect culture, community, and commerce to support their success.
